Ricky Hanson Wildflowers


Ricky Hanson wildflowers of Florida.

the work of Craig N. Huegel, PhD. I am an environmental consultant and educator who loves plants. Though formally educated as a wildlife biologist, I am an enthusiastic gardener and have studied and worked with plants my entire life. I currently teach in the Baccalaureate Biology Program at St. Petersburg College, teaching Plant Biology, Field Botany, Conservation Biology, Ornithology, Vertebrate Zoology, and Wildlife Techniques. I have written five books on Florida native plants – the most recent three with the University of Florida Press and I lecture throughout the state on a variety of topics related to plants and wildlife. My wife and I use our Pinellas County landscape as a laboratory to evaluate native plants and we grow a wide variety of species (mostly wildflowers) that are not commonly propagated elsewhere.in order to give us hands-on experience. Hawthorn Hill is not a retail plant nursery, but twice a year, we open our yard to public tours and we make our extra plants available to the public. If you are interested in what we are currently growing.

Ricky Hanson Softball Social


Ricky Hanson in sociology, playing softball with the team.

Team Anomie, the UCF sociology department co-ed softball team, completed their fall season at the Oviedo recreation and parks adult softball co-ed league. Lead by Dr. Ford, the team managed to compete and win several games; including a brief appearance in the league’s playoffs (unfortunately the team was eliminated in the first round of the playoffs). The team roster included graduate students, faculty, and friends of the department. More importantly it gave the department an opportunity to interact with other community groups and participate in recreational activities with our Oviedo neighbors.
